Great Britain’s Lizzy Yarnold wins gold in skeleton after nearly dropping out due to dizziness

Every Winter Olympics, many of us get excited when we flip on the TV and Luge is on. Just when you think, “wow, this looks unsafe”, Skeleton comes on, and racers do the exact same thing as Luge, but headfirst.
